Abstract

Attibuted to high altitude and inland location, the glaciers in China are characterized by very low temperature. The prevailing monsoon climate delivers most of the annual precipitation over glaciated areas of China in the summer, making the major accumulation on those glaciers coincide with the ablation period. Therefore, the annual mass balance should be calculated neither by giving the place of annual accumulation to winter balance, nor annual ablation to summer balance. Rather, it is better done by net accumulation and net ablation during the year. The monitored glaciers are few compared with the large glacierized area in China. Some estimative models are thus introduced
